    This is looking good! I know you used the sleeper cab from the RoG, it looks like you also used the cab from the RoG kit, am I right? Still impressed with what can be done with those snap kits!

    To make a modern Transtar as Chuck is showing here, somebody could probably could use the Moebius truck frame and this Jada cab. But looking at the grill, the front end is a little lower though:

    Thanks for the comments! The basic kit was great, I added some bits and pieces to make it mine. Quite a bit of work went into this, and the end result is quite fine by me. So unless you drastically modified an AMT lowboy trailer, if you wanted a modern lowboy, this was the only game in town.

    I think we were quite a few to get ripped off by that OTHER guy.

    KJ Humphreys lowboy trailer, almost finished
    I think I haven't posted anything on this one, anyway, I didn't find any, so here goes. KJ made a kit for a lowboy some time ago, so when I got my copy, I started building it almost right away. It has a 3D printed framerails, mostly cut "Evergreen" styrene parts, a good quantity of resin molded parts and balsa wooden planks for the side floors. I made myself a Lego gage to make the trailer straight and proceeded with the build. It was fairly straightforward and easy to put together. I wanted more suspension detail so I swapped it for an Auslowe suspension and brake kit, added wiring and plumbing and scratchbult hydraulic cylinders for the detachable gooseneck. I'm almost finished with it, it needs a couple safety beacons in the back and a license plate. Here is what it looks like now:
    You've seen this LTL before, I'm using it for fitting and demo:

    from the rear


    Nice 2 resin hole rims and rubber tires included in the kit

    Showing some of the rear brake system and wooden floor

    Those nice wheels again with the scratch built big "D" panel

    Functional cylinders

    Unhooking gooseneck

    Unhooked

    Cylinders retracted

    Ready to load that dozer, almost...

    like I said, almost done! Needs it's own tractor and Dozer now.
